Echo Hotel Music Club at the Elizabeth Hall, Raven Road, Hook RG27 9HH, Hampshire, RG27 9HH
Gorilla Riot

Gorilla Riot are a 5-piece dirty rock n’ roll blues machine from Manchester, England.

They play raucous blues based rock, combining elements of grunge, stoner and country to create a full-on high energy rock show.

Created by mainman, Arjun Bhishma, he surrounded himself with the best talent in Manchester to form Gorilla Riot - creating a 3-prong guitar attack with multi-part harmonies. 

Arjun, Liam Henry (guitars & vocals), Charly T. (guitars & vocals), James Degnen (bass) & David Thomas (drums), began songwriting and soon entered the studio to record their debut self-titled album. This set them on their path to deliver their blues-drenched dirty sound that evolved into the acclaimed EP, Six Shots Down in 2017.

Equally at home acoustically or electrically they released their first album in 2017. American Honey Vol 1 saw the guys extend their sound and song-writing prowess with 3 new songs plus an exquisite re-working of their hit song, Last Hymn.

Manchester’s dirty southern rock n roll blues mavericks, Gorilla Riot have recently announced that they have signed a 2-album licensing agreement with Off Yer Rocker Recordings (OYR), home of The Quireboys & Massive. They are about to release a new Southern rock style single and tour Europe as a precursor to a major UK tour culminating in a new album release
